Burrows, William an English Methodist preacher, was born at Nottingham, Jan. 2,1799. While a boy, he was convinced of sin by reading John Nelson's Journal, and soon afterwards he found peace through believing. He was a local preacher in his youth, and entered the itinerant ministry of the New Connection in 1823. He was a burning and a shining light in the Church, and travelled in fourteen of the best English circuits. He labored till his strength was utterly exhausted. For three years his sufferings were great, but he died in triumph at Sheffield, Dec. 4,1852. See Minutes of the Conference.
